the incident was not work-related, but it is shutten down production for at least a day. 5,000 police were called in. 40 rioters sent to the hospital. foxconn as has faced charges of poor working conditions, low pay, and mandatory overtime in the past after a string of suicides at a separate factory in 2010. foxconn, with apple's help, sought to improve things. the factory that was the site of last night's riots reportedly makes casing for apple's iphone 5. apple isn't saying yet whether the shutdown will cause delays in orders of iphones for customers. >> gloria, thanks so much. back here at home, new video overnight of two wildfires that have erupted in southern california. at least 200 homes are in the flames' path in riverside county. four other homes have been destroyed. meantime, heavy winds have pushed thick smoke from wildfires in washington state all the way east to greenland, affecting air quality in several states. sam will have much more on the extreme conditions out west in just a few moments. a frightening ordeal at the philadelphia airport.

windshield onto the road. but this is the amazing part. he walks away from the crash seemingly uninjured. and look where one driver ended up in brazil. he was hanging off that bridge for a half hour before being pulled to safety. he lost control after the car in front of him stopped short. that is incredible. glad both of them survived and apparently had no scratches. >> thanks very much. now, back to los angeles and the emmys. the stars out in hollywood for tv's biggest party, josh, you were there for the whole thing and there's some big winners, all our friends at "modern family"? >> oh, yeah, george, they got the show started with a bang and of course they ended it pretty well as well. as we just get started with the emmys afterparty here. lara and i got to catch up with big stars right to my right at the nokia. after they accepted, they were discussing the country's most watched comedy.
"modern family" took home plenty of that gold. we chatted with julie bowen and eric stonestreet after their big wins. >> the emmy goes to "modern family." >> reporter: it was a family affair. >> thank you so, so much. >> reporter: america's favorite sitcom taking home four statuettes. >> an embarrassment of riches. >> i just want to share this with every actor whose got an audition tomorrow at 5:00 in santa monica. i went to every one of them. i never missed one. >> reporter: the night's other first-time winner -- >> to "homeland." >> reporter: a pregnant claire danes nabbing the honors for lead female. >> my husband, my love, my life, my baby daddy. >> reporter: while the show's male star used his winning moment to introduce himself. >> i'm damian lewis. i'm one of those pesky brits. >> reporter: and tackling winner jon stewart. >> i'm not in the kind of shape i should be in to do a bit with jimmy fallon. >> reporter: while jimmy kimmel also nominated in the category took out his frustration on his folks.
>> they always told me you can do anything you set your mind to. so this year, i set my mind to winning the emmy. and guess what, mom and dad? i didn't win an emmy. security, could we please have my parents removed from the theater? go ahead and tase them, bro, if you need. >> reporter: and julianne moore. followed tina fey's footsteps, becoming the second actress to win an emmy for playing a certain former alaska governor. >> i feel so validated because sarah palin gave me a big thumb's down. >> reporter: and jimmy kimmel who took his late-night act into primetime, nabbed some of the night's biggest laughs. >> all of you are winners tonight, but in a much more literal way, most of you will be losers. >> reporter: at one point, even asking those who were watching to help increase the size of his audience. >> go on facebook or twitter right now. here's what i want you to post, oh, my god, tracy morgan just passed out on stage at the emmys.
just lie there for ten minutes or so and when people tune in, they'll see this. >> reporter: and perhaps our friend and winner for best reality host, tom bergeron sums up the night the best. >> this is the icing on a very sweet cake. thank you. >> i've got to tell you, it was an icing on a very hot cake. 125 degrees on this red carpet as they headed into this theater. what a night it was, though. some surprises.

"your voice your vote" just 43 days before the final vote. and mitt romney working to pull his campaign out of a september slump as president obama with politics here in new york. jake tapper is here this morning. jake, the candidates were combative on "60 minutes." >> that's right, george, they're entering a new phase, the debate
phase of the campaign. so right now, with the first debate coming up a week from wednesday, the candidates are looking for any edge to knock the other on his heels. >> reporter: mitt romney barn-storming battlegrounds, colorado, ohio and virginia, trying to regain momentum lost after a tough week on the trail. on the campaign plane overnight, romney was asked why he was trailing in so many battleground states. >> i think that the president's campaign has focused its advertising, in many cases, on very inaccurate portrayals of my positions. he's trying to fool people into thinking that i think things i don't. that ends, i think, during the debate. >> reporter: when he lands in ohio, tuesday, a brand-new tv ad from the obama campaign will greet him, assailing the republican for the hidden camera comments he made describing 47% of the country as irresponsible, government-dependent victims. >> mitt romney attacked 47% of the americans who pay no income
tax, including, veteran, elderly and disabled. >> reporter: and president obama today and tomorrow will be here in new york for the united nations general assembly. he'll be taping an appearance on "the view" today. though he has no time to meet one on one with any world leaders. >> so he has time for whoopi goldberg, but he doesn't have time for world leaders? >> no, chris, look -- the president is going to be actively involved at the u.n. general assembly. >> reporter: while he leads in ohio, most notably, there's another number he's focused on. state-by-state unemployment, which went up in iowa, new hampshire, north carolina and wisconsin. and nevada. a new romney campaign ad hits the president on his economic record. >> fewer americans are working today than when president obama took office. >> reporter: the president responded on "60 minutes" saying the u.s. has been weak on foreign policy in syria and
iran, says mr. romney. >> if governor romney is suggesting we should start another war, he should say so. >> one other item from that interview that the republicans are pouncing on, president obama talking about unrest in the muslim world, george, described some of the events as bumps in the road. the romney campaign saying that the death of four americans including the u.s. ambassador to libya is far worse than a bump in the road. to former politician arnold schwarzenegger and his bombshell revelation in his tell-all memoir, "total recall." that hits bookshelves days from now. for the first time, he's opening up about the moment his wife maria shriver confronted him about his love child. abc's dan harris is here with all of those details. dan? >> amy, good morning to you. we all new about the scandal. now we know what happened behind the scenes. in book excerpts published in "the daily news," the terminator said he was blindsided by his wife. it happened the day after then governor arnold schwarzenegger left office as governor of california. he and his wife went to a counseling session initiated by her. quote, the minute we sat down
the therapist turned to me and said, maria wanted to come here today and to ask about a child. whether you fathered a child with your housekeeper mildred. i told the therapist it's true. and then, according to schwarzenegger, he started to grovel, saying he had screwed up and that she was the perfect wife and that he was still turned on by her. it didn't work. shriver separated from him and then filed for divorce. >> if my life was a movie, no one would believe it. >> reporter: in the new book called "total recall" which comes out next week, schwarzenegger says he had sex with housekeeper mildred baena in 1996. in the family guest house when shriver and their kids were away on vacation and he was home filming "batman and robin." he said for years he tried to convince himself that her husband was the father, until the boy grew up and the resemblance to schwarzenegger was so strong, quote, i realized there was little doubt that he was my son. all the while he watched as shriver defended him from allegations of infidelity.
>> i am my own woman. i have not been quote bred to look the other way. >> reporter: but schwarzenegger says he kept it all a secret because he was embarrassed and because he didn't want to face up to his wife's family, the kennedys. he says he put it in a compartment and locked it up where i didn't deal with it every day. and he notes a parting shot he said shriver took after their marriage ended during her father's funeral. >> perhaps his greatest accomplishment to me was showing my brothers how to treat a wife. >> schwarzenegger who was in the audience said, that comment may have been, quote, partly directed at me. you think? schwarzenegger says he still hopes to reunite with shriver, quote, you can call this denial, but it's just the way my mind works, end quote. >> and arnold schwarzenegger will be right here on "gma" on monday. >> next week. >> thanks, dan. >> looking forward to that. now new details about the
man who jumped into the tigers den in the bronx zoo over the weekend. he's speaking out telling police why he did it. but he'll also have to explain himself in court. and abc's linsey davis has the story. >> reporter: 25-year-old david villalobos plummeted 17 feet down right into the jaws of a 400-pound male siberian tiger, much like this one. >> he stated he wanted to be one with the tiger. was not an effort to kill himself. >> reporter: police say he jumped from the monorail on purpose, clearing two fences, one even electrified. and told police he landed on all fours like a cat. >> apparently, he has a fascination with tigers. he said he visited the zoo in the last month, month and half. >> reporter: in his nearly 10 1/2 minute romp in becoming one with the tiger, he escaped with a broken ankle and bite wounds. his most serious injuries were sustained from his fall, breaking his shoulder, pelvis,
rib, and suffering a collapsed lung on impact. responders managed to save him by distracting the tiger with a fire extinguisher. >> they instructed him to roll over by an electrified fence. they told him to be able to roll under the fence. >> reporter: and this isn't the first daredevil behavior at a public zoo. in this video from singapore, a man crosses a moat to get to a tirg enclosure. in ak, a this tourist went over the rails just to get a picture of a polar bear. in this latest attack, he told them everyone in life makes choices. this choice brought him charges for trespassing and nearly took his life. for now he's still in the hospital recovering, but early next year, police say he'll be in court to face those criminal trespassing charges. and he says he was not trying to commit suicide. he was not intoxicated. he just wanted to be one with the tiger.
still trying to get my mind around that. >> he paid a price for that. thanks very much. let's get back out to josh and lara for the emmy afterparty. >> that's right, george. it was a huge night here for television's biggest stars. last night did not disappoint. for "modern family." for the rookie "homeland" and jon stewart, the awards were plentiful. for jimmy kimmel, the laughing were nonstop. >> julie bowen in the house, everybody. congratulations. >> thank you so much. thank you. >> you're giddy? >> i really am. i'm sort of beside myself. i feel a tiny bit guilty, but i'm going to get over it. >> how is that, because obviously there's the sofia thing. >> sofia is amazing. i think people don't realize what she does is a character. they think -- and she always plays it, please, that's just the way i am. she does so much. and basically phonetically. >> how is it? sweeter second time?

this is special. i'm happy to have one for myself now to keep in my house. >> oh, gosh, to see the emotion on eric's face after that win, it was wonderful. we're just getting started here in los angeles. for now, you've got some answering to do, sam champion, for the hotter than cartoon weather we suffered through yesterday on the red carpet in the afternoon. i blame you, big boy. >> uh huh, not happy. >> yeah, breaking news. it's hot in california. josh, you're from there. you guys looked great. everybody else was shiny but you guys looked great, i've got to say. >> uh-huh. >> uh-huh. >> how was that? >> sweet lies. sweet lies. >> only thing that would have been better if you had been here, sam champion. >> well, it was 68 degrees here. we're kind of happy of what we have in new york city. how about that? move the emmys to new york city next year. we'll talk about the fire that's
going on. the heat plays a big part in those as well. from san diego to riverside, these fires have been at it in the last 24 hours. there is cool air moving into that region that should help a little bit. at least you're not going to see the crazy numbers like the triple digits. you're looking at salt lake from the 60s to 70s. denver goes to the 60s on wednesday. and sure late for josh and lara, but cooler breeze working that way. and the cooler temperatures into the northeast. check out the frost and freeze warnings in 16, 17 states. that chilly.
